Wessex Water unveil new sewer plans

There was a good turn out at the drop-in at Westerleigh Village Hall on Monday, where Wessex Water unveiled their plans to build a sewer bypassing the village for the abattoir waste. It is hoped this will address both flooding and odour issues in the village.

The new 1.6km pipe will be exclusively for Tulip trade effluent and will join the main Yate 600mm sewer north of the Nibley Lane junction. The work will cost £1 million and start in September 2018, taking an estimated 5-6 months.

There were also representatives from Tulip and the Environment Agency on hand to answer questions. Tulip will be putting in place a dedicated phone number to report any further issues.

Let's hope the new sewer will put an end to the bad odours affecting the village.
